Poster Submission

In 2012, we had a successful competition for the best poster at the Congress.

In 2015, the competition will be repeated, so start preparing your poster. A prize will be offered for the best poster presented at the Congress and a second for the best lecture by a participant under the age of 35. Voting will take place on the last day of the Congress.

For those who have not presented a poster before, this is an excellent opportunity to interact with those interested in your own special subject and the feedback is generally better than in a normal lecture session.

If you would like to submit a poster please note the necessary requirements below. To register just send an email to our conference office with your name, title and a short abstract of your poster.

Deadline: 31st of July 2015


A traditional Poster to be on display for the entire congress mustn’t exceed the dimensions of A1.
Posters on several sheets are not advised.
The orientation of your poster needs to be PORTRAIT.


Design your poster layout in the following sections:

  • Title, author(s), address (at upper edge, across the width of whole poster)  
  • Purpose
  • Methods
  • Result
  • Conclusions       

The title should be emphasized by the use of bold-face type. When displayed the letters used should not be smaller than 15mm.
The subtitle should be printed in the same kind of lettering, but semi-bold and not less than 10mm high when displayed. This guarantees clear reading even from a distance of 2-3 meters.
The text should be broken up by the inclusion of drawings and/or photos. The use of colour makes the poster more attractive and effective.

Posters need to be printed at your own expense.
Material for mounting your poster to the poster board will be supplied by the organizers.
Please refer to the conference staff in the poster area for further assistance.

Please note the organisers cannot be held responsible for Posters displayed or left in the Poster area or in the Congress Centre. Posters must be collected after the Congress.
